Julia has danced from a very young age and took part in various competitions and dance festivals throughout her childhood. At the age of 16, Julia went on to Clarendon College to study English & Theatrical Studies, before gaining an Honours Degree in Performing Arts at Middlesex University. After working at a Theatre Marketing business, Julia decided to do a PGCE in Primary Education at Leicester University. Julia spent 20 years as a Primary School teacher in Leicester, Nottingham, Essex and West Sussex, playing a key role in Performing Arts development. In 2007 Julia left teaching to pursue her passion for dance and children by founding Kicks Dance in West Sussex.

At Kicks Dance, we have always had such lovely feedback from parents, schools and children about our teachers. We only employ individuals who we feel fit the Kicks ethos and who we know will uphold our brilliant reputation and high standards. These are some of our many teachers:

Our classes are targeted at specific age ranges and offer regular structured lessons.
